    Having owned a playstation 2 in the past and being a die hard GT3 and GT4 but not being able to buy the PS3 purely for GT-HD I was wondering if anyone could recomend any 360 driving games which are similar? I tried out project gotham racing 3 but found it a bit unrealistic in bits. I just bought my xbox a week ago so was wondering what people would recomend? The guy at the shop said there was something similar to Gran turismo coming out on the xbox but I forgot the title.

    Thanks in advance :)

    That would be Forza 2, due for release beginning of June with a playable demo hopefully arriving any time now:thumbsup:

    There's a massive thread for the game just below this one if you take a look.

    I am a die-hard GT fan. I even have a Web site for GT2/GT3/GT4/TT so I do have preferences when it comes to driving games.

    Project Gotham Racing 3 is worth a look as the price should be well down now. There is a decent selection of cars and tracks (including the 'Ring).

    Test Drive Unlimited has the advantage of almost being a "social" driving game as you can chat to other drivers with the headset as you drive around the island (around a 1000 miles of roads). Car handling in the game is also pretty reasonable and there are over 100 cars to choose from.

    For both of those games there are extra cars available for download (for a price in most cases).

    id say get Test Drive unlimited, its brilliant and will keep you going for ages.

    all sorts to do.

    Then also Forza 2 is coming out, dont know if il be getting it personally but its supposed to be good so thats worth a look aswell and could suit you.

    Forza 2 then Sega Rally for me. Although DiRT drops first, I think.

    In any event, Forza 2 is the game you're waiting for and in the meantime you should be able to pick up PGR3 and/or Test Drive from a bargain bin somewhere.

    Forza 1 is a very good game. In the mould of GT4 but, with much better physics.
    That should keep yo going until the Forza 2 demo arrives and June 7th when the full version is released.

    PGR3 is ok but, more of an arcade racer. Personally, I didn't like Test Drive: Unlimited as, it was a bit........limited but, you could download the demo and try it for yourself :smashin:
